Identification Labels

A good identification system is a key element to prevent cross-contamination

Lubricant Identification from Bulk System to Point of Use

Using the wrong lube can be just as damaging as not lubricating at all. It can lead to asset failure, but it may also void the machinery's warranty. Those problems result in increased spending, since the assets need to be replaced. However, when having multiple lubes and lubrication points in your factory mistakes will happen. 

Key element of oil application is preventing cross-contamination, which can most easily be achieved by a good identification system. Next to good filtration, high quality breathers and filter carts, a colour-coded labeling system is an integrated part of contamination control. 

The colour-coded labeling system comprises two core components: Identification Labels and Label Holders.

Identification Labels

Oilsafe's customisable label system eliminates mix ups and lets you be confident that the right lubricant will go into the right machine every time. It enables accurate and consistent lubricant identification from bulk storage, through transfer, to the fill point. 

The label-system combines the 10 OilSafe colours with geometric shapes. The advantage to utilise a symbol along with a colour (to specify a particular lubricant for an application) is, that you can expand the number of unique colours and shape combinations. Another advantage is that even inexperienced technicians can put the proper lubricant in the right place.                 

From Storage to Transfer to Identification, the visually intuitive OilSafe System is a simple and impactful way to improve reliability in your plant and extend the life of your equipment.
